Prepare to be taken 'Reet Back’ to the Whitby of days gone by in our first ever TV advert!
Directed by the brains behind the legendary Marmite ‘Love it or hate it’ campaign, Andy Mcleod, ‘It be Whitby’ is our very first television appearance and also the UK’s first TV advert totally devoted to the great British classic, Scampi. We hope you enjoy.
Scampi – or langoustines, if you want to give them their frilly name – are actually small lobsters. The scientific name is Nephrops Norvegicus, but you can sling your hook if you think we’re printing that on every packet..
We responsibly source them from the chilly waters around the British Isles...
...and carefully prepare them with our tasty golden crumb here in Whitby, North Yorkshire.
We pack up our delicious breaded morsels and send them off, with a tear in our eyes like proud parents, to your local supermarkets, pubs and restaurants across the land.
